WHAT IS COCA?
Colony of Coastside Artists (CoCA) began in 2010 with a realization that most artists work in isolation and rarely share their work with others unless they sell directly.
How was this year different?
Our goal is to keep everyone safe while continuing our annual tradition. We’ve been inviting visitors into our studios since 2010, and this year we welcome you back into our “Covid-safe” environments.
Once again, we offer artwork for sale through our Open Studios tour. We welcome eight new artist to the CoCA
Many of us will show outdoors or in our garages to accommodate the County guidelines for safe distancing. Currently, mask wearing is also State-Mandated, so please be considerate of our artists and each other.
We will use our mailing list to announce CoCA events. If you are interested in being on our list visit the Contact Page.
Sign up for our Mailing List and check back to learn about new group shows we are adding during the year.
Thank you for your patronage and interest.
For information about COCA and the artists:
Our neighbors are often surprised and delighted as we “come out” as artists living nearby.
From CoCA Members:
“I’ve felt the spirit of CoCA has been inclusive, supportive, sharing and gracious to all artists. ”
“If CoCA were food, it would be the best macaroni and cheese you ever ate.”
“CoCA is a group of talented, committed, and friendly artists who get together to share their creative experiences.”
“Moving to the coast has been a wonderful experience, but joining CoCA has made it feel like I’ve come home.”
“CoCA is a group of talented and passionate Coastside artists who welcome and mentor fellow artists at all stages of their artistic path.”
